I Hide

Published by Family Friend Poems May 2017 with permission of the author.

Due to my twisted sense of pride
Having no one in which to confide
Taught to never show the tears I've cried
Many times wishing I had died
No one knows just how hard I've tried
To not show what's truly inside
So I hide
I hide behind a mask and a smile
Faking it all the while
Never showing the true trial
Constantly in a state of denial
Feelings of worthlessness, nothing worthwhile
When did things become so hostile
So I hide
I hide behind a guise and grin
Rarely acting on a whim
Afraid of what could've been
Letting too much get under my skin
Patience continuously worn thin
Keeping everything within
So I hide

I hear you loud and clear, my friend. I'm 40 years old and there is not one living soul who knows the TRUE me, and that's really sad. I have a mother, father, brothers, sisters, husband, and two kids, and not one of them knows me inside. Maybe one day!

It kinda relates to me...being hidden your whole life and pretending does seem hard...
